Infinity is set to be a live-service game that will evolve and expand over time. While nothing has been made official yet, Ubisoft has recognized the existence of this game. Usually, an Assassins Creed title will focus on one specific point in history. For Instance, Unity was based around the French Revolution.

Assassins Creed Infinity will be a unique title in the franchise as it will feature various pieces of history stitched together to form one game. The long-standing success and replayability of games like Fortnite and GTA 5 have inspired this developmental change.

Who will develop Assassins Creed Infinity?

While Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec usually take it in turns to develop each iteration of Assassin’s Creed, Infinity will be a joint effort between the two divisions with Quebec’s Marc-Alexis Côté taking charge overall. Furthermore, each studio will still have its own creative director. Jonathan Dumont will take up the role for Ubisoft Quebec and Clint Hocking for Ubisoft Montreal.

The organizational change is designed to help the franchise “evolve in a more integrated and collaborative manner that’s less centered on studios and more focused on talent and leadership, no matter where they are within Ubisoft.”
